The stars of Bargaining for the Barrister by Anneka R. Walker are Louisa and Paul who won me over from their introduction to their final decisions. Louisa is a young woman who has recently lost her parents with an older brother who would like to see her happily married. Paul is young and does not want to be married for reasons that he tries hard to keep a secret. Lady Kellen and Paul’s mother form a group of friends and scheme to be matchmakers, hoping to find the perfect matches for their sons. When Louisa comes for an extended visit and meets Paul, the two do not immediately hit it off. Slowly their friendship improves but marriage is still not in the cards or is it?

I really liked reading Bargaining for the Barrister: Matchmaking Mamas, #1. The storyline was very straightforward and entertaining. Bargaining for the Barrister fits all the requirements of a romantic historical novel that takes you back in time and becomes very real. Anneka R. Walker has written a great story that I hated to put down and I was hoping the story would go on and on. I so wanted to shout out and advise both Louisa and Paul. The other characters including Paul’s friends and the mothers trying so hard to make a match made the story so very appealing. It would spoil so much of the book if I give you any more information, but I do urge you to read it for yourself. I am eagerly looking forward to reading more from Anneka and highly recommend Bargaining for the Barrister.
